Re: Contest... etc.
Plan accordingly. You know attendance will be spotty. Plan for that. Shrink the show and use A/B marchers so that you can easily fill holes. Shorten the show so you can have fewer sets. Limit the number of rehearsals in an effort to give time for kids to be home and resting and avoiding contact. Don't stress out and quit asking for others to do your job.
Plan, adjust your plan, be smart and use the college degree you have. If you could do a 30 set show and cover 10 sets per week for 3 weeks or 5 sets for 6 weeks you could EASILY cover the variety of attendance issues that will be present.
